Malfunction triggered bus evacuation on H-1 Freeway in Pearl City


A malfunction caused quite a scare for bus riders on the H-1 Freeway Tuesday morning.

It happened in the Zipper Lane on the bus servicing Route 91 from Ewa Beach.

Katie Yamada shared video from inside the bus, which revealed a hazy, smoke-like atmosphere.

According to Oahu Transit Services, a line apparently severed in the vehicle’s air conditioning unit, which triggered some misting, but no smoke.

Passengers were forced to evacuate and get on two other buses instead. “Everyone was okay, just a little shaken up,” Yamada said.

The bus in question was driven back to the OTS facility at Middle Street and inspected by mechanics.
